So now they're called "business models"?

I've disagreed with CircleID
authors before. You can chalk this one up as yet another
disagreement.

I'm not sure if James Seng was being sarcastic or not
(I'm quite dense when exposed to subtleties) but just about everything
that he describes as a "business model" in this article, I
find offensive and wrong as the underlying methods employed are usually
illegal, unethical, or just plain offensive.

What methods are these?
Let's see...

  • blog comments spamming
  • wiki
    spamming
  • domain hijacking
  • domain
    squatting
  • dishonest or unethical registrars

Have I
missed anything?
